Protect Products

CONTROL Concentrate is supplied in a 1 litre easy to dose bottle and this provides 84 litres of ready for use (once diluted) high level broad spectrum disinfectant.

Here at Source we've been testing this product rigorously and have found excellent results for the following;

  • Removing urine smells from urinals and surrounding walls and floors
  • Preventing uric crystals from forming in drain pipes, coming off urinals
  • Removing the odour from old mops and cloths (when soaked in diluted control)
  • Whitening of darkened mop heads
  • Eradicating odours from spilt milk
  • Neutralising pet urine on carpets
  • Removing general odours in the atmosphere (when sprayed through the NAP sprayer

Chlorine free, alcohol free and utilising very low levels of chemicals ensure TECcare CONTROL is a non-toxic, non-irritant, non-corrosive and food safe.

This can be used as an all-in-one cleaner and disinfectant and with the 1 litre bottle now utilised is very easily dosed and allows a single-step cleaning approach to be adopted, which is both user friendly and time and resource saving.

CONTROL can be used on all surfaces and is residue-free so leaves no deposits and it can be used in any application environment. This allows for cleaning and facilities staff to significantly reduce the number of products they need to procure, manage and use in their cleaning and disinfection routines.

This product has impressive tested results in clinical areas as well as areas such as public toilets which removed the requirement of using aerosols air fresheners to mask the unpleasant odours previously experienced!

This product does not change the Crib rating (fire test) of a material unlike some other products on the market being used to disinfect surfaces.

We believe this product has a big future in cleaning and disinfecting across many sectors.

What Is It?

ECO-DET is designed to replace and reduce overall solvent and other classified chemical usage in a wide range of applications.

VOC-free Environmental Detergent/Degreaser

  • 100% biodegradable
  • No environmentally hazardous ingredients
  • Plant based
  • Free from enzymes, bacteria, acids, phosphates and preservatives
  • Non-toxic to aquatic organisms
  • No acute oral toxicity
  • Non-irritating to eyes or skin
  • Non -flammable 
  • Non-corrosive

TECcare ECO-DET detergent / degreaser is a truly environmentally friendly highly effective, industrial grade environmental cleaning fluid. 

ECO-DET Technology is designed to replace and reduce overall solvent and other classified chemical usage in a wide range of applications and is highly effective in cleaning processes and the removal of a wide range of hazardous contaminants. 

ECO-DET is a green replacement to a wide range of substances commonly found in industrial cleaning and decontamination products and the absence of hazardous ingredients or other substances harmful to the environment eliminates site contamination issues due to accidental spills. 

It is carbon neutral, has no global warming compounds, does not form toxic by-products during the cleaning and decontamination process and is non-VOC according to EU directive 1999/13/EC.

As the organic deposits are liquefied, the formation of unpleasant smells is largely prevented. It can be used at high temperatures for cleaning due to its non-flammable properties.

Highly effective at removing: 

  • Crude oil, hydrocarbons, oil, grease, fuels 
  • Solvents such as Xylene, Toluene, Benzene
  • Phenol, Ethylidene Norbornene, Carbon disulphide (CS2) 
  • Mineral, vegetable and animal residues
  • Paint, inks, adhesives and glue residues

A ‘green’ replacement for: 

  • Petroleum-based, chlorinated solvents, e.g. acetone, benzene, toluene, xylene
  • Surfactants and aqueous cleaners
  • Cleaning emulsions
  • Other classified products such as sodium hydroxide, caustic potash

Safe environmental disposal

Eliminate hidden and extra costs related with Environmental Contamination Safety, Precautions and Handling, Transportation, Storage and Health: 

  • Neutral chemistry eliminates the need to manipulate wastewater pH levels prior to discharge
  • Its presence in wastewater after clean-up does not negatively affect the degree of contamination and often simplifies its disposal
  • Reduces conditions for COD control, minimising turnaround cleaning time

ECO-DET’s mode of action

ECO-DET reduces the surface tension of residue molecules, rupturing the complex molecular chains into smaller particles therefore increasing their contact surface area, and accelerating the process of biodegradation rendering them easier to manage. 

The multi-actions of ECO-DET dissolve the contaminant’s adhesive potential, preventing surface adhesion thus allowing accelerated biodegradability by enlarging the residue’s surface, ensuring natural oxygen exchange, to allow a return to a biological equilibrium.

TECcare® ULTRA is a world class ultra-high level sporicidal cleaner/disinfectant technology platform offering rapid and effective
disinfection across a range of industries.

The TECcare ULTRA technology platform is based on a peracid with an adjuvant effect to enhance its antimicrobial efficacy.

Uric Crystals

Here at Source, we have worked exclusively with the chemists at TECcare to establish ULTRA as a key product in the process of eradicating uric crystals that have formed inside plastic plumbing.

Having undergone testing here at Source and on client sites where high traffic washrooms cause major uric crystal build ups (and embedded into non-slip floors), we have been very impressed with the results and recommend this as part of a solution for tackling smelly washrooms, once and for all.

Ultra-high level cleaning and disinfection

  • Softens and dissolves uric crystal built up in urinals and pipework (repeated treatment)
  • Softens and dissolves organic matter in drains
  • Denatures hair that is built up in drains

  • Food manufacturing and processing (reduced risk of contamination, production of safer food with less spoilage, improved process efficiency)
  • Healthcare (reduced incidence of infection, reduced risk of infection / cross infection)
  • Leisure/tourism and educational establishments (reduced risk of cross contamination, infection outbreaks etc.)
  • Water systems treatment (reduced risk of contamination)
  • Laundry (improved process efficiency, reduced water consumption, significant energy savings and cost savings)

The TECcare R-Foam drain disinfection kit features a controlled and specially formulated rheopectic foam (hence R-Foam) which is applied into the U-bend/trap, replacing the water with a foam barrier that prevents bacteria re-entering the sink and with the Control fluid destroys the biofilm and its pathogens, allowing it to flush away.

Simple to use and administer and this will assist you with ensuring your plan for BS8580-2 Water quality – Part 2 – Risk assessments for Pseudomonas aeruginosa and other waterborne pathogens is backed up with technology that works.

The TECcare R-Foam drain disinfection kit comprises of a 1 litre TECcare CONTROL Intermediate fluid, a high level broad spectrum disinfectant cleaner which is used as a concentrate and poured directly down the drain to loosen biofilm and destroy pathogens in the U-bend. It is also used in a diluted mixture in the supplied NAP sprayer provided to clean sanitary ware surfaces. The kit contains a pack of the new TECcare EFFACE wipes, a long foam dosing tube and 20 neoprene sink drain seals.

The TECcare R-Foam drain disinfection kit is simple to use and, as well as protecting patients and healthcare workers, it prolongs the life of the drainage system and ensures the continuous availability of your sanitary ware and associated pipework in the plumbing system.

The TECcare R-Foam drain disinfection kit can be used for deep cleaning your drainage system as well as for routine cleaning. Swabs can be taken to determine the contamination levels of the drain. 

This should be done by somebody trained in aseptic sampling techniques. The frequency of routine cleaning depends on how dirty the drain was in the first instance, but the aim is only to routinely clean the drain on a weekly basis. If the drain remains clean in between weekly cleans as evidenced by interim swabbing, then the frequency of cleaning can be extended to fortnightly.

This system can also be utilised for shower heads and shower tray drains.

Instructions for use are contained in the box.
